Sunday Salon: Mystery in New Orleans and on the High Seas

I have a copy of a favorite cozy writer's new book, Glitter Bomb in the New Orleans Scrapbooking Mystery series.  It's been a while since I read the series, so this book looks very attractive.
Glitter Bomb (A Scrapbooking Mystery #15)

Glitter Bomb by Laura Childs, October 2, 2018, thanks to Berkley Books
Genre: cozy mystery series
Setting: New Orleans
An exploding Mardi Gras float is used as a murder weapon.

Another arrival is from Seventh Street Books with a much more serious book cover.
The Devil's Wind

The Devil's Wind by Steve Goble, A Spider John's Mystery, September 11, 2018. 
The mystery is historical, featuring a pirate as sleuth, solving a murder on the high seas..

It's an odd idea, isn't it? A light mystery. But so many of us are taken with light mysteries. I suppose it is because the world is often so heavy.

I hope to be reading and reviewing some light books this week. I think I may read some children's books.

I've been reading psychological thrillers recently, much more realistic novels, so it's nice to read a book that focuses on the story rather than on the characters.

Those both sound good. I don't think I've ever read a mystery with a pirate as the sleuth. Enjoy!

A good cozy mystery is always a nice palate cleanser for me after a bunch of heavier books. I hope you enjoy your choices for this week. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Glitter Bomb sounds good but I think I want to start at the beginning of the series. My weekly updates

Harvee said...

Good luck with starting at the beginning of the series. This is the 15th book, I think.

Harvee said...

I do like a break in between heavier books.

Harvee said...

This is a good series!

Harvee said...

New Orleans, baby!

Harvee said...

Not familiar with those two books but glad you are enjoying them.

Harvee said...

A pirate sleuth should be fun. Normally, the pirate is the bad one.

Harvee said...

Mardi Gras, New Orleans!

Harvee said...

I have to attend Mardi Gras through books!

Harvee said...

This time, the pirate is the good guy.

Harvee said...

Imust get to New Orleans one of these days!

Harvee said...

Eager to read about the sleuth pirate too.

Harvee said...

I also enjoy the tea mystery series by Childs.

Harvee said...

Closest I can get to Mardi Gras right now!

Kathryn T said...

Light mysteries are the best! Enough yucky stuff on the news each day to keep me away from the rest! Glitter Bomb looks good.

Harvee said...

Let us know if you try it!

Martha Eskuchen said...
